What is Buzz the Fuzz?
     Buzz the Fuzz began in 1998, when a group of San Francisco Police Officers organized the first Buzz event in support of children with cancer. Challenging their fellow officers to get involved, all participants were asked to show up at a given date and time to have their heads shaved. Each participant was asked to raise $1,000.00 for the cause.

     Heads were shaved that day and a tradition established. The shaved head continues to be a symbol, a connection with those children who have lost their hair to chemotherapy. the message it sends to children is clear, "We respect your courage and we've come to help."

     May 13th 2005 will mark the fifth "Buzz the Fuzz" event to be held in San Francisco. We're asking our fellow officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel to show up and help us make this year's event the most successful ever. There are many children whose burdens will be lightened as a result of your support and participation. We hope we can count on you to lend a hand.

Who benefits?
California Law Enforcement's Wish Upon A Star
Wish upon a star is a non-profit, law enforcement effort designed to grant the wishes of children who suffer from high-risk and terminal illnesses. It has been helping children for the past 23 years. Many of us at SFPD have been personally involved, seeing first hand the happiness it brings to children. For many wish children, the happiness they experience can be so profound as to actually transcent the illness, providing a time of physical improvement and demonstrating that, given the chance, the human spirit can soar. As for the parents of these children, people who have been under great emotional and financial sress, the opportunity to join with their child in the happiness of this time is a priceless gift in itself. For many parents, these moments become comforting memories.

Childhood Cancer Research
Funds will also be given to UCSF Medical Center in a manner that will directly benefit the pediactric population, enhancing their quality of life during times of hospitilization.
